Coles Master shower

Nw guy here to the forum. We live in Texas so have concrete subfloor; new construction. We Kerdi membraned all bathrooms. Used the 5:1 ratio for deck mud...All set for the mortar..Now to my question. Our master shower is roughly 49 sq ft. Any ideas on how I can accomplish all the deck mud at once or is it OK to do half one day then half the other. I know there is little time to work deck mud. Any tips tricks or hell no appreciated.

Welcome, Cole.

If you'll add a geographic location to your User Profile it'll appear permanently and help in answering some types of questions. If you don't, even the Texas location will be lost before we leave this page. And Texas covers a lot of climate, eh?

I'm confused. It sounds like you've already created your mud shower floors. What mortar are you "set for?"

Cx I believe he is referring to "All-set" the Schluter line of mortar.

Ah, I see. That would be what Schluter calls ALL-SET, then, rather than being all set to use it?

But I'm still confused about the deck mud question where he says the floors are already finished, but wants to know if he can do less than a full shower floor at one time.

Certainly preferable to do it all at once, BUT, if you must break it up into stages, be sure to apply a slurry of good thinset to the existing mud sides. Should be soupy enough to slosh it on with a brush....

I would get help making the mud and carrying it in. Make small enough batches that can be used within an hour.

First things first! Thanks for answering I feel privileged!
North Central Texas.
I did one bathroom shower floor already deck mud schluter mortar the whole 9 yards....and I am getting ready to do my master bathroom but it's quite bigger than the guest shower. I'm just not sure if I can complete the deck mud all at once with mixing leveling etc.
